I am wondering if anybody has done this to their car. Does it do anything?
Nasty Noise. But it's hard to hear because the engine is running.
Good old learner days i thought i'd stalled on a roundabout
It files down the gears of your starter motor. Not something you want to do on purpose.
AFAIK the car reverses the alternator and tries to start the running engine from the battery resulting in two things.
1) A grinding noise that varies in loudness and ferocity based on the model of car.
2) Possible mucking up of the works of your automobile. A few times probably won't hurt much, but I wouldn't make a habit of doing this to a vehicle you are fond of.
Don't do it for sure. As a general rule, I would say if it sounds bad, it probably is bad or doing damage in some way. It will grind the starter as has been said.
i did it once when i was first getting used to driving. it engages the starter motor and it doesnt sound healthy. and in my book that means never do it again.
I once did that to my friend's TL. I didn't know it was on because the engine was so quiet. Like the others said, a grinding noise. It didn't sound good.
It might be easier to ask who hasn't done it?
I did it once. I thought I had stalled my car so I went to start it up and the sound of 1000 demons erupted from my hood. I let in the clutch and drove off, rather embarrassed.
I did it once and 1000 demons actually errupted from underneath the hood.
I never did it again.
